  • Sauté uncovered until chicken stock is evaporated/absorbed.
  • In same glass pan, line the inside of each pepper half with ham slices to cover, add 1/4 of halved cheese to each pepper, stuff with chicken mixture and top with thin tomato slices.

  • Remove foil baste each pepper with stock in pan, then cover with remaining cheese.
